Hello All,
My name is Colin. I am a former middle school math teacher and currently work for an educational software company. I am also a beginning options trader and am finishing my masters in Theological Studies. This is a new journey for me in having an online footprint. My hope is to share some of the things I have learned in ministry and marriage as well as growing a passive income.

This site is going to be a combination of things I enjoy. Ruminations on faith, technology, marriage, trading, and others I am sure. Not surprisingly, a lot of my posts will involve numbers because I LOVE numbers! They are objective, and yet tell stories. They are unchangeable snapshots of a highly variable world.

Colin, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Colin.

Kyle,
Thanks for checking in. I feel like I am making some good progress and starting to get into the content of my site. Reviewing other people's sites were helpful as it gave me some more ideas of how to improve my own site. I'm holding off on the social media push until I have a bit more on the website. Is that what you would recommend? Or should I start the social media as soon as I have my main pages posted? I want to invite people to content, and it looks pretty sparse still.

Yeah, don't bother with social media too much in particular in the early stages of your business, there are much more important things.

You can share your content socially as you publish new content, but beyond that don't waste too much time on social media and focus on the tasks within the training as it will get you moving in the right direction here.

Sounds good! Thanks for the advice. I have my first post up which is a review on WA. I've been very impressed at the community and your desire to have a pay-it-forward feel. I believe that you genuinely want people to be successful with you and not just making a profit through your business.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Frank,

Thanks for reaching out. As a newly wed, we have had many people tell us that we are starting out well and have been pointed to as a good resource. Current plan is to write a few posts on things we have learned and highlight the resources we have used that have been helpful.

If you have any tips that would fit that area, I would gladly take the insight!

Thanks!
Colin

The key to gaining new visitors to your website is to find keyword phrases that your target audience types into the search engines that you can rank for, and then trying to rank for those keyword phrases by creating content.

So my tip would be to use a good keyword tool that will be able to identify these keyword phrases and then create content that relates to it.

Welcome Colin, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 5 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 4-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 4+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank
